Prime Plano minimally invasive surgery clinic, Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery of Texas, has recently upped its efforts to provide information to people who want to more about back pain treatments by releasing several articles on MIS. The articles relate several experiences of how many people, and even celebrities, broke free from back pain without the need for open surgery.

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is a type of surgery that makes use of technology to perform operative procedures for treatment. As the name suggests, minimally invasive surgery does not involve making large incisions just to view and access problem areas. Because of the need for accuracy and precision with this treatment, MIS procedures are only done by truly skilled neurosurgeons.

The articles published on focus on the benefits of minimally invasive neurosurgery as a back pain treatment. According to one blog, “The minimally invasive surgical procedure is performed to avoid the trauma, which is caused by open surgery. Open surgery procedure is performed by making a long incision (cuts) through all tissues and including your muscles. By comparison, minimally invasive spine surgery which helps to eliminate all the trauma. It is also called a muscle-sparing procedure. There are different health benefits of minimally invasive surgery, [including]: shorter hospital stays, shorter recovery times, less pain and discomfort, less chance of infection and bleeding, and minimal scarring.”

A noteworthy experience that was related in the article was about one particular professional athlete in the golfing scene. After experiencing several back problems that eventually led him to go out of the limelight for two years, it was a type of minimally invasive procedure that helped him come back and eventually dominate tournaments once again.

The procedure, called Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion, involved fusing two pieces of spinal vertebrae through the abdomen. This unique angle of attack enabled a higher chance of success and faster healing rates. Minimally invasive robotic surgery also helped neurosurgeons to have complete control of the procedure, reducing human error and increasing efficiency.

Under the subheading “Benefits of ALIF Over Other Surgeries,” the company states:
“If you are wondering about the benefits of ALIF over other surgery methods or types of lumbar fusion, then let us tell you that ALIF is a well-tolerated surgery procedure and allows for less pain and speedy recovery than other types of spinal fusion surgeries that are usually performed from the posterior of the spine.

ALIF is a minimally invasive surgery method that allows for placing a large cage compared to other types of spinal fusion surgeries. As a result, this provides more and more stability as well as higher chances of fusion the two or more vertebrae solidly.” encourages patients suffering from back pain to contact their neurosurgeon as soon as possible to get early treatment. Back pain can be mitigated through medication and a better lifestyle.
